What we love most about this easy craft is that it’s so versatile! Use a bit of yarn and hang it on a tree as a decoration, make a dozen and make a garland… And why hang them? It will also look amazing on a DIY Christmas card!
How to make a Christmas tree with a handprint
What do you need:
- green paper (cardboard)
- yellow or gold paper star
- huge craft stick
- Buttons, jewels or paper
- the glue
- Brown colour
- Hanging wire and clear tape or washi tape
Begin by painting the giant staff brown paint. Set aside to allow the paint to dry.
While you wait for the paint to dry it’s time to make the tree. Trace the outline of your hand (fingers wide apart) with a pencil.
Cut along the contour of the head.
If the paint is already dry, apply glue to the tip of the stick. If it’s not dry, skip this step and go straight to decorating the mini Christmas tree.
Glue the outline of the hand onto the craft stick.
Decorate the tree! Glue a glittery star to the top of the tree.
Make little balls out of buttons or gems (or any other useful mini-ball-like material).
If you want to turn this handprint Christmas tree craft into an ornament, flip it over and tie a hanging string to the back (top) of the craft stick.
Your handprint Christmas tree decorations can be displayed on your Christmas tree or as gifts for family and friends (we know grandparents will love it).
